Fall 2017 Gutter Cleaning Schedule
Created on Saturday, 25 November 2017 16:59
Original information regarding gutter cleaning dates that was provided by the contractor was incorrect. Our aoplogies.
Their next best estimate is that they will start tomorrow (12-2). Fingers crossed.
Long story short, don't be too surprised to see people on ladders cleaning leaves from gutters in the next few days.
New Retaining Walls Complete LTD
Created on Friday, 17 November 2017 17:21
The two new retaining walls behind Lake Terrace Drive are now complete. A split rail guard has been added to both for added safety. The muddy area surrounding the walls has been seeded and mulched to better retain soil.
In areas too steep or narrow to mow, gravel over a layer of landscape cloth has been added to reduce maintenance.
We haven't replaced all of the walls yet, but with the new wall behind Olson Spur added earlier this year (see previous news item), at least there are three fewer of the old ones falling over.
Retaining Wall Update
Created on Friday, 13 October 2017 18:24
The original, 30-year old retaining wall between Silver Valler Blvd South and Olson Spur has been replaced.
Additional erosion control measures are being completed there as well, including: mulch, a new gravel drainage swale, and large water diversion boulders. Grass and pine mulch will be added to keep soil in place and make the area more attractive.
Next on the 2017 SVCA project list, we'll be replacing two more original retaining walls, and adding similar erosion control measures behind Lake Terrace Drive. To learn more, download our 4-page pdf progress report, complete with photos and descriptions.
Look for more updates on this site in coming weeks.

Here's what's been going on the last few weeks:
Arrangements were made to allow the city to install the final three wireless water meters. Our sincere thanks to the affected residents for their patience and cooperation in upgrading their inside water shutoffs.
Trees/bushes were planted at two units where trees had been previously removed.
Common area landscaping was repaired and upgraded at two units.
Landscaping crews continued to repair and re-plant select hillside areas to help limit the severe erosion we have experienced in these areas.
The badly rusted mailbox support at Ridge Side Court and Damon Drive was reported to the USPS. (Hopefully this will be addressed before another mailbox topples.)
The Board has requested bids to replace the three worst retaining walls: two behind Lake Terrace Drive and another between Silver Valley Blvd. and Olson Spur.
Unit owners living near the old retaining walls know that they are litrerally falling apart, and may best be described as "termites holding hands."
Lake Terrace Island Renewal
Created on Thursday, 24 August 2017 14:24
As the final phase of a three-year program to clean and trim the islands in Silver Valley, landscapers cleaned, planted, and added stone borders to parts of the large island on Lake Terrace Drive.
The crews also cleaned the area surrounding the mailboxes and added stone borders.
To maintain the natural woded look of the community, the pine needle beds beneath the trees were left intact.
